. louisiana, mississippi, what is happening in some of those states? >> that is an important point, one of the interesting demographic changes in america over the last 25 years. the expert we will hear from later. traditionally, immigrants have gone to the south, other than -- shunned the south, other than texas. that has been a problem. now, you are seeing dixie really attracting a lot of the immigrant states like north carolina. one of the states with the biggest percentage increase of immigration over the last 15 years has been georgia. it has become a high-growth state. people at, are immigrants more attracted to a state with high welfare benefits, or are they attracted to a state that has jobs? we look at some of the evidence, and what we found was, on balance, immigrants are much more likely to go to states with unemployment rates than they are to go to states with welfare. they are coming here because they want a job, not a welfare check. >> it makes logical sense. if you are to leave your country and make out somewhere new -- >> there are so many people on the other side of the
on where you were. louisiana sugarcane back on its feet, until the hurricane of 1883. you go into mississippi, it was pretty horrible. it was not all blamed on sherman. it was the collapse of the cotton market. the english went to india, egypt for cotton the last few years of the blockade, it broke them. 6000 union soldiers elected to settle in new orleans. it was not all like "gone with the wind." it was coming back, but it was a different culture. it would not be agricultural. it would not have that until later in the 19th century. host: the north was in the midst of a great big industrial revolution. the days of the big financiers on wall street. tell us about what was happening there. guest: thanks in part to the machinery of war. guest: it was a continuation of the war and an expansion, and they were getting ready for the centennial of the nation and showing off the advances that had been made in the past 100 years. most of those were technological advances, the old farming equipment to the new modern technology, transcontinental railroad, transportation was bringing peo
have a comment. there was a poll in louisiana as a republican and 29% of them blamed president obama for the government's katrina mess. i think these people that did that are absolutely ignorant. he was just a senator not a president. host: thanks for calling. gale on the line from new jersey. gale is a republican. is the cost of college worth it? caller: well. it was about $15,000 a year 20 years agfor my -- ago for my daughter. she's a nurse and she -- my husband was actually disgusted because he felt she concentrated more on the marching papers. she went to a local community college. also, i'm quite disturbed. i put myself through a business school about 40 years ago. i paid for it out of my $100 a week salary. kids can't afford cost of tuition, why should the taxpayers be paying. you go back to the academic standards of 47 years ago, most of the kids going today are not academically qualified for college. they're getting a free pass because of the social justice. the standards are so bad, i. wouldn't want my kid going to school today. host: thanks for calling gale. so much of
, louisiana. go ahead you are on. caller: we don't care about people getting gas. run any deals on the sex the of the children who suffered agent orange in vietnam. off sincery is better we have been bombing them over the last 20 years? >> welcome to the show, tony. uest: >> >> guest: it seems we really don't care about those people over there. we do care about countries like israel. i care about the country of israel also. i don't care about the government of israel. i believe -- one minute we're calling all those folks over there terrorists, the next minute we care about them so much. this needs to stop because it is just going to backfire on this country and all hell is going to break loose in the middle east and we are going to be responsible for. it needs to stop. >> guest: listen, i teach at the presidents on the modern here in new york. i want to bring out a point, just a commonsense point. martin luther king who believed ,n nonviolence, if esau obama he would turn over in his grave. this is the situation. we are sending 100 houston male soldiers and female soldiers to afghanistan,
remain evacuated in louisiana as crews clean up the site of the 26-car derailment west of baton rouge. the train went off the tracks yesterday afternoon triggering a leak of a dangerous chemical. one went to the hospital complaining of an eye ire irritation. japan launched the first talking robot towards the space station sha's supposed to communicate with the other robot on earth sent with five tons of supplies and machinery on a rocket yesterday. those are your news headlines on the fox business network. now back to lori and adam. lori: that looks like a child's toy, that robot. unbelievable the technology. many thanks. okay, breaking news for you, fox sports reporting 12 major league baseball players agreed to be suspended for 50 games in the ongoing investigation, and among those, texas rangers right fielder cruz, detroit shortstop, and still no word on yankee's star alex rodriguez. adam: embassies authorized to open by the state department after they were closed sunday because of a threat from al-qaeda. nineteen posts, however, remain closed as a result of what the state departme
, it's massachusetts. it's louisiana which is sort of unique in some ways. we'd all have a debate about whether it's good or bad, what's happening in louisiana. and that doesn't bring, the small school thing is in that mix. it's nested in that mix. what does a school day well? what would be better to farm out to a larger entity. you don't have a lot of that farming out in a lot of state digital have so much in california. you don't have so much in new jersey that superintendent sharing program is interesting, and hopefully someone will study that. but i think that's where you would want to move. are the things that a small school can do well, and then how large do the other entities have to get to take on certain tasks in order to be effective? >> again, i think your paper and the position that 105s doesn't fit all is right thing to take. interdistrict may work in some places, but then there has to be real choice if it's going to be the case but it has to be about quality and has to be about kids as opposed to the politics that we see floating around choice now. and the places that we w
in the senate voted for this.mary landrieu runs in louisiana as if she is some kind of moderate democrat. she is a yes vote for obama on everything. obama has been trying to crush the oil industry. she has done nothing to protect it. the state has been badly damaged by president obama's policies against oil and energy production. mary landrieu stands there and does nothing. she has to run for reelection. not only has she been attacking louisiana's major industry, but she was also the person who gave them this mess of obamacare. there are a whole series of challenges. i think that is why it is possible to get a year's delay in obamacare. i think only focus on the career, at the american people say we can do better. it does leave the door open. some democrats could step back from the mistake they made when they voted for a bill that they had not ever read. host: why do they keep saying the americans did not want the affordable care act when he was elected on that? guest: obama beat romney. there are a whole series of issues on the table there. if it had been a referendum on obama care, romney w

served in the u.s. army from 1989 to 1994 and was stationed in germany and fort polk, louisiana. dustin, the youngest of three sons, knew from an early age he wanted a military career. he'd been wanting to do that since he was a little boy about when he was 6 years old, darrell recalls. i encouraged him to do so, and he was a leader. he'd take the initiative to get things done. i've always raised my boys to do the right thing no matter if the cause was popular or unpopular. by the time he reached high school dustin was a top cadet in his junior rotc program. i remember him as a model student, very quiet, and serious. you always knew where he stood, says colonel mark jones of the air force junior rotc program at south laurel high school, dustin's alma mater. dustin rose to be his junior rotc unit's corps commander and the most decorated cadet.f pfc s shoong many -- shook many at south laurel high where dustin graduated in 2010 and had many friends. when i heard he died my legs almost collapsed. it was unbelievable. he was a good friend, a mentor and a truly good person says deafen burkha

to rosanne prats, the director of emergency preparedness for the louisiana department of health and hospitals that puts it smack in the middle of coordinating among federal, state and local agencies that are dealing with and preparing for the disasters. she has a background in health administration rules and was around during the katrina days in louisiana and has been with the department for more than 20 years. we are pleased to have you with us today. >> make sure i've got this right. >> can you hear me? all right good afternoon. i think i was one of the last panelists to be picked up on this very distinguished panel. usually i never had a loss for words. from the operations perspective if you told me, you know, that the problem is katrina, read the, gustav, ike, the mississippi oil spill, recently tropical storm isaac. some of the concerns we have is how can we evacuate have the coast line in a 38 hour period i know who to go to and how long it is going to take. how many will be evacuated or not, how many can help themselves, how many will be the state's assistance, how many of those will n
million dollars from the boondoggle of the louisiana purchase that was included in the original bill. all of those repealed or changed portions of the affordable care act signed into law by the president of the united states. we have heard heart-wrenching stories by our friends on the other sides about help challenges and illnesses. yes, mr. speaker, there are challenges out there. as a physician i can attest to that, spending 20 years taking care of asians. but americans do not want washington deciding what kind of healthcare they can have or should have. we need patients, families, and doctors making those decisions. it would be preposterous to say that republicans do not like affordable care, quality care, accessible care. nonsense, mr. speaker. nonsense. what we want is the highest quality of care that respects the principles of affordability and accessibility and choices and responsiveness and innovation. we simply want patients and families and doctors to be in charge of healthcare. not washington, d.c. and not the irs.
